After Lily was born I did all the usual worrying I do once our baby has been born - is she too hot or too cold, is she eating enough, is she breathing??? Well one of my other worries was "Do I remember how to do child CPR or Heimlich for an infant?" I went into a panic of course (like usual) and I thought "What if I leave Lily with Oscar (aka O-Town) and he doesn't know what to do?" Once I got over my attack I started to think rationally, I did remember what to do, and I know Oscar had to pass a first aid training in his scouts. But I thought it would be a good thing for the whole family to learn together even if it was a refresher course for some of us.
We decided it would be a good Family Home Evening lesson, so we invited Kip and Jessica Dribnak over for a combined family night. Kip was very helpful and even though it was a refresher course for me some information had been updated like the ratio of 2 to 30, meaning 2 breaths to 30 compressions. All the kids listened to Kip talk about what to do and then they each had a turn practicing.
They all practiced on a 'volunteer' first before they practiced on the great looking plastic ones. *smile*
And the award for the best unconscious person goes to........McKenna Dribnak! Yahhhh! Seriously she was the only one who wouldn't giggle and wiggle all over. Mason was a close second, but Zachary would NOT hold still.
Don't the Dribnak's look like they've done this before?
I'm pretty sure my family needs to have more practice *wink* Oscar was the most confused.....Kip had to correct him.
No this is NOT how you do a 'rescue breath' Mason and O-Town....
Parker was more interested in showing everyone his type of rescue breath..... Good Grief!!
Here is Kip demonstrating how to hold an infant to perform the Heimlich maneuver. He said it was weird having a live model, I think she performed perfectly *smile* Everyone was taught the steps for both infant and adult, even for pregnant women, but somehow I don't have pictures of that.
Half way through we (by we I mean Jessica and Oscar) had to perform some basic first-aid to little Miss Molly. She was so excited jumping up and down on the couch that she tripped and caught the side of the couch with her lip. She was such a trooper, after a popsicle and some hugs and kisses she was right back out there jumping around. *smile*
After the practice was done we served out dessert and some how music was put on and the house erupted in dance!! Here are a few of the MANY pictures that were taken.
The worm as shown by non other than Kip.........
Oscar was teaching Morgan some new moves.......
We all had a great time. Thanks Kip for sharing your knowledge with us, I'm sure we'll have to have a couple more practice sessions for my boys *smile*
